Our own Ed Underwood has created a wonder-filled little book that traces how magicians became part of the evolution of motion pictures. From the early "Magic Lantern Shows" to "Phantasmagoria", to celluloid innovators like Georges Melies, the French stage magician who became the father of special effects, this little book tells all.
You will read tales of geniuses, con men, magicians, showman and inventors. But most of all you will discover how magicians used cinema to put a little magic in your head!
It's a fascinating story and a forgotten piece of cultural history.
